A stunning contrast to more developed areas of Charletson, John’s Island is truly a diamond in the rough. One only needs to drive the lovely scenic roads to discover the charm of its maritime forests and unspoiled natural beauty. The second largest island on the East Coast (second only to Long Island NY), John’s Island was traditionally a planting community for early settlers of Charlestowne. A haven of relaxed Lowcountry living, Johns Island is home to Angel Oak, the oldest living tree east of the Mississippi, with an estimated age of over 1,400 years. The island boasts several private resort golf courses.
